The University of Iowa offers email accounts for students and faculty and staff.

When sharing your email address with others, we strongly encourage you to use the alias (  (NOT your routing email address).

Questions?  For more information about opening an email account, contact the ITS Help Desk, 2800 UCC, 384-4357,

Faculty and staff may obtain email accounts for home and/or office use. In either case, apply for an email account here.

Students should go to MyUI to request a university email account. (MyUI > Student Information > My Email)

If you currently read your mail on another mail server, this is what will happen:

  1. Your Office 365 account will be created.

  2. Your mail routing will be changed to route to your Office 365 email account.
